I am a first-generation, senior Environmental Science major with a Biology minor and will be graduating in May 2022. Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, I am very excited to move to Boston, MA soon to start my PhD in Biological Sciences in Public Health at Harvard University where I hope to study Space Toxicology.
I am currently the President of the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) St. Mary’s chapter, Founder and Vice President of StMU Humanitarians, and have been a MARC U*STAR scholar for almost 2 years. I also angle myself as a business-scientist, as I have authored a children’s book (We Are All Human) and avidly market it to bookstores/bookshops. In my summers as a St. Mary’s student, I have completed research projects at Michigan State University, Rutgers University, and with University of Louisville.
Congratulations on your award. Personally I have never vaped. The risks and affects that e cigarettes can have on your body aren’t worth it for me. I think your infographic has some great information and brings awareness to young kids who want to start. In my opinion, when young kids start vaping, it’s not necessarily for the feeling it gives you it’s more of trying to fit in.
